This image is from a series showing Afrocuban Orisha-dancers in action, with all the aspects and symbols used in the ceremonies. Ogun the fierce warrior and hunter wears his mariwo-skirt, made of palmfibre, and has medicine in his gourds attached. He is holding an iron machete in his hand and is dressed in black and green, the Cuban colors for Ogun.

The image is drawn after a photo of Afro-Cuban dancer Yusimi Moya Rodriguez and used with her permission. Thank you!
